How old are the horses that run in the triple crown races?
They are 3 years old. All horses are officially a year older every January 1st. So, regardless of the date of their birth, the Triple Crown races are for 3 year olds.
The Triple Crown races are for three year olds only.
The Triple Crown, or respectively the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and The Belmont Stakes, are exclusively for three-year-old Thoroughbreds. Because the distance increases with each race it is harder for the horse to complete The Triple Crown. Last winner was 'Affirmed' in 1978, he was euthanized at the age of twenty six after an injury to his pastern caused him to suffer from laminitis. And actually, most of the horses that have run these races… Read More

Zenyatta ran her first race in November of her three year old year. Since she did not compete as a two year-old or early in her three year-old season she hadn't competed in any of the qualifying races that precede the triple crown.
It is when a race horse wins all three big races of the year. The Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. It is all within 5 weeks and must be won back to back. These 3 races are the biggest stakes in the world. It is for 3 year old race horses.
Races for 3 year old thoroughbreds are restricted by entry conditions "for 3 year olds". The Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont) are the most commonly known races for 3 year olds.
No. Only three year-old horses are allowed to race in the Triple Crown and in horseracing, a mare is defined as a female horse five years old and older. A three year old female horse is a filly, not a mare. A three year old male horse is a cold, 5+ he is a horse.
The first triple Crown winner was Sir Barton in 1919.
The only age at which any hosrse can run in th KY Derby is 3 (three) yrs old, as is the case with the other two Triple Crown races--the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.

Unlike the Triple Crown, where all three races are run at different tracks, the first two races are run at Belmont Park, with the Alabama Stakes being run at… Read More
Seabiscuit did not run in the TC as a three year old.
Quarter horses are named that because they can run a Quarter of a mile really fast. They had races in the old days for a quarter of a mile and they would use Quarter horses for them. Now Quarter Horses aren't as popular for racing, because Thoroughbreds have better stamina.
The Kentucky Derby is a Grade 1 Stakes race run on a dirt course at a distance of 1 1/4 miles. It is restricted to 3 year old thoroughbred horses. It is run on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY. It is the first race of three in the Triple Crown.
If it is thoroughbred that is going to be racin, the birthday for all thoroughrbeds is Jan. 1st, because of how many there are and how the races are set up by age and it is much easier to watch how old horses are this way.
Because thoroughbreds are raced according to age (IE- the Kentucky Derby is a race for 3 year olds), they all have the same "birthday" of January 1st of the year they were born in. This alleviates confusion when entering horses in races since all horses born in a certain year are eligable for the races for their age group. For example, all horses born in 2010 will race as a 2 year old in 2012… Read More
The Kentucky Derby, the first race of the Triple Crown is just for 3 year olds. At the time that Seabiscuit was a 3 year old he was disappointing his trainers which would eventually lead him to be sold for the bottom price of several thousand dollars.When he was sole the new buyers bought him a companion named Pumpkin and his jockey was Red Paulard.Seabiscuit and Red were a toast and jam match.
Sir Barton Sir Barton became the first American Triple Crown winner in 1919, just about the time when it was becoming recognised as a series of races worth winning. He won the Kentucky Derby as a maiden (never winning a race before) and also won the Preakness just four days later. Then, he won another stakes race before winning the Belmont Stakes, which was at the distance of 1 3/8th miles then. He was amazing… Read More
I am going to take a guess on this, but I think it would be as a yearling or a two year old. I base my thinking on the age horses run for the large horse races. They are in those age range.
Well, it depends on the breed of horse..... the average horse, however will be grown to its full size when it is 2-4 years old. Fun Fact: jockeys use 2-4 year old horses in races because, they are fully grown, show a lot of spirit, more energy (than most older horses), and most likely can run faster than older horses.

A crown on an old piece of jewelry was a way to signify that the metal is real. You would see the metal stamp and then the stamp of a small crown.
The age at which a horse 'should' be ridden is the cause of major debate in the horse world. Many people begin saddle training and riding horses as long yearlings ( one year and six months) and two years old to get them ready for futurities and races. However this practice is detrimental to the horse as a horses leg bones/joints are not fully formed and hardened until they are at least three or four… Read More

He set track records in all three of the Triple Crown races, but the Preakness Stakes because the timer malfunctioned. He won the Eclipse award for… Read More
If you are referring to the old Triple Crown Line,they were Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor and Charlie Simmer. The Kings are playing so badly these days I wouldn't call any of their players a threat, although some of their good young players such as Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown may mature into NHL stars.

The US is not the only place that has horse racing. Surround was indeed an Australian horse and in 1976 became the only filly to win the Australian equivalent of the US Triple Crown. that's how good she was. Young Australian horses rarely race in the Northern hemisphere becasue their 'birthday is 1st July making them either 6 months older or younger than northern hemishere horses. In my opinion, maybe Surround is a great horse… Read More
